Tigers Win Fifth Straight

July 8, 2012 Updated Jul 8, 2012 at 7:20 PM EDT

DETROIT -- The Detroit Tigers are beginning to get contributions from more than just a few players. Delmon Young homered for the fourth consecutive game, Prince Fielder hit a three -r un shot, and Jhonny Peralta homered and drove in three runs in Detroit's 7 - 1 win over the Kansas City Royals on Sunday to complete a sweep of the three - game weekend series.

Young and Peralta, who were both expected to provide power and production behind Fielder and Miguel Cabrera, have had slow starts. After his homer streak, Young has 10 home runs and 37 RBIs, while Peralta goes into the All- Star break with only five home runs and 27 RBIs.

The power display backed Max Scherzer, 8 - 5, who allowed a run and five hits over seven innings, walking one and striking out seven.
